2012 Bottle direct from the cidery. Pours golden and highly sparkling. The taste is sharp green apple with a little funk and a clean crisp finish and champagne like fizz. Pretty dry. This feels like drinking a cross between cider and cava. It’s nice enough, but not entirely my cup of tea. Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle shared with Justin. Aroma of fresh tart apples and slight perfume. If you get in close, the aroma shoots run up the sinus. Cork popped across the room and the bottle gushed something proper so be warned. Big huge champagne bubbly head and a solid carbonation once it dissipates. Taste is green apple, tart citrus, floral, champagne, and a funky yeast. Mouthfeel is dry brut champagne with no real lingering bite. Very pleasant and unique.

Pours a nice pale straw color with a huge rise and fall head and so many tiny bubbles rising up in the glass.
The cider is very aromatic, floral & earthy with a lot of wet limestone and some nice tart apple. There is some mild barnyard funk to it, but it’s sort of lingering in the background.
The flavor is largely dry with just a touch of apple sweetness up front. It’s got a nice minerally character and a really good tartness throughout. There is a touch of spice and a nice bit of leather. The apple skin bitterness is low but well employed here. The acidity is both bright and well balanced & never becoming too dominant.
The palate is both light and prickly & as such very well suited to the flavor of the cider.
A very enjoyable cider on all accounts.
Bottle. Hazy light gold with active carbonation and no head. Aroma is plastic and earthy funk. Taste is sour apple with a weird bacon and bandaid finish. Crisp dry palate. Pretty weird. daniele (9018) - ITALY - MAR 18, 2014

Bottle. Very hazy umber-hued, low carbonation. Aroma is very complex: funky and cheesy and appley. Equally complex palate of sweet apple pie, vanilla, spice, cobwebby spaces, light cheese rind, raw dough, wet clay, leather. Holy smokes this is an incredible drinking experience! j12601 (10871) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2014

2011. Nose is leather, funk, apples, tart skins, rubber, acetone, blue cheese. Flavor is stilton washed down with applejuice, yeast, funks, basements, slight rubber. Pretty nice. Not as dry as I recall the regular version being for some reason.
